When people object to something, it is important for them to express their views and urge others to do the same. Two articles along those lines in the May 29, Times caught my eye: "Mahony Stirs Battle on Pornography" in the Metro section, and "Peace Group Protests Rambo Toys" in the Business section.
Archbishop Roger Mahony is urging boycotts of stores selling sexually explicit magazines and of television shows with explicit scenes. Perhaps the archbishop longs for the "good old days" when the Catholic Church published an Index of Banned Books from the Dark Ages through the 1960s.
But the Catholic Church's position, combined with the U.S. Attorney General's (Meese) Commission on Pornography's thinly veiled threats against 7-Eleven and other variety stores that sell Playboy, is a threat to personal freedom in this country.
I proudly subscribe to Playboy and rent X-rated movies at the local video store--and amazingly enough I'm not a drooling pervert who lurks near junior high playgrounds!
